Back to WW2 and boots on the ground

Good

threefootwang62d ago

Agreed. Now please keep all of the ridiculous perks, weapons mods, and kill streak packages down to a minimum and just give us a good old fashioned shooter!

Palitera62d ago (Edited 62d ago )

The problem was never perks. The game was still great with kinds like Martyrdom, Juggernaut and Danger Close.

The real problem is the speed and the corridor maze map design (which means run and gun is today the only viable option), dominant after Black Ops.

But whatever. It is just the Groundhog Day again. People hope AND believe COD will be great again after every single reveal.

And then later complain COD still exists at such scale.

Today's fanbase are the ones that love what we hate about COD. Guess who Activision chooses...

Here's hoping the story/campaign/single-player is less like a Michael Bay action film and more like Saving Private Ryan or Hacksaw Ridge.

THAT would have me interested in a heartbeat.

Either way, a WW2 setting is enough to pique my interest again. I was just doing work at a nursing home and one of the resident there had his discharge papers on the wall . . . He fought at Normandy on D-Day. Unfortunately his hearing was so bad and I didn't have a whole lot of time, so I wasn't able to talk to him about it too much, but it was still really cool. There hasn't been a conflict since then that's come even remotely close to the same scope, scale, or stakes as World War 2 was.

I think Sledgehammer Game want this game to be like Band of Brother.

Tru_Blu62d ago

Wish it was IW, world at war sp was a blast.

Prince-Ali62d ago

@Tru_Blu

But World At War was Treyarch NOT IW!? so how does that make any sense! lool

IceKoldKilla62d ago

@Tru_Blu You mean Treyarch. IW didn't make World at War.

For a World at war copy and paste job

CernaML62d ago

I absolutely would NOT mind that.

annoyedgamer62d ago

You say that like its a bad thing..

So it is true. Here the thing, this game got leaked way earlier than previous COD games.

ApexWolf2262d ago (Edited 62d ago )

I find it difficult to digest that it was accidental. Infinite Warfare turned so many stomachs, that I'm sure it was intentionally done to build hype towards taking COD back to its roots. They have way to many measures to prevent "leaks"

ocelot0762d ago

Good no more of this space crap. Might actually but COD this year.

CyrusLemont62d ago

You're a space marine sent from the future to help change the tide of word war 2 using advanced tech and skills like exoskeletons and walrunning abilities.

/s

That would be the best troll though haha

ocelot0762d ago

I swear if that happens........

MasterCornholio62d ago (Edited 62d ago )

Sounds about as retarded as the storyline in Ninja Gaiden games.

What next future neo Nazis go to the past to turn Hitler into a giant robot?

LOL

CyrusLemont62d ago

Wow can't believe how many horrible typos I left in that comment, sorry everyone!
